I've got hogs consistently every night that I need to get but I don't have a night vision set up. What green light setups can y'all recommend so I can shoot some pigs under my feeder at night?

Thanks in advanced for any help.

Ive got several cheap ($29 or less) high output green lights that I got off of Amazon that I used to use, that I now loan out to buddies that dont have NV/Thermal capability when we hog hunt...

Theyve stood up to recoil of everything from 556 to 308 to 458 SOCOM.. no problem.. and easily illuminate feeders out to at least 150 yards..

Ive got a really nice Sniper Hog green light as well.. they are top quality.. and I really like that they are a TX based company with outstanding customer service... but, if Im truthful, other than having even higher illumination output (which Ive found really isnt necessary at the 2 places I primarily hunt in East TX... my longest shots are 150...)... I dont see much of an advantage when comparing cost vs performance..

these fit in a 1" scope ring and attach to pic rails easily...

Interesting, so not one that you mount to a feeder to light up an area but one to use on your scope. Thanks for the reply.

You could look at solar powered landscape lights in green. I've got a spotlight mounted above my smoker with a motion sensor on it like the one in the link. It will stay on very dim all night, but then goes bright when motion is detected. I've not seen the motion lights in green though.

I prefer a rifle mounted light.. because it allows me to scan the area and/or follow the pig once it is hit to the wood line in the event it is able to move after taking the bullet..

Ive hunted a couple of places that have motion detecting lights located around the feeders.. they certainly work... i just prefer a weapon mounted light..
